So first thing is, we have been open for almost 4 years and are doing ok, but if things continue the way they are, we aren't going to make it. I have about a year and a half before my lease is up and so that gives me time to turn things around, but somedays I feel like I don't want to. Of course I don't want to lose all my investment and all the hard work I have done over the past 4 years, but let me explain my dilema. I am 28 years old and I can't seem to get away from my mothers control. My whole life I have done what my mother said to do, everything had to have her approval, EVERYTHING I do, I have to have her approval. I feel like if I stay in this business with her I will never be able to live my life for me, but I absolutely love my store. I love the company I am apart of. How do I move on, what would I do without this store? It has given my the freedom to be with my son 4 days a week, yet financially it really isn't doing anything for us. That is another thing. I am worried about my financial future with this store. I have a college education and I know if I had a job I could be making money, instead I have this store that I am scraping to get by, BUT I GET TO BE HOME ALOT WITH MY SON!!! I don't know what to do. I'm lost!
Sorry this was so long, and probablly confusing. I'm just lost.
